  • Great player, missing a basic feature Apr 18, 2019

    By Bauhsoj
    I use an iPad Pro 99% of the time. I download videos from various sources but they’re rarely ever major films or tv shows. I’d really like the ability to edit metadata myself so I can clean up my library. While there’s a button that says “edit metadata”, all it really is is a search field for check a database. If your file isn’t on there, well, you get to have crappy cover art and crappy filenames. I thought that with the addition of Files app support I could use the method for metadata that they recommend on their website, but that doesn’t work on an iPad for some reason. I really don’t see why it’s so difficult to allow me to edit all the data for the file including the cover art on my iPad Pro. Seems really silly. I paid for a subscription for 2 years now thinking they’re add it, but nope. Still looking at a messy library on my iPad. As a player, I love it. Probably the best I’ve used. I’m just sick of waiting for a feature that doesn’t seem like it’s going to be added.

  • The best media player!! Dec 12, 2017

    Hands down the best media player on iOS, play pretty much any formats without any hiccups whatsoever! If you have server (ftp/smb) with all your media collections then infuse is the one for you. This is better client than Plex because this app will direct play anything without transcoding it first. My only problem with this app is the paying system, if you paid the pro version then you will not receive anymore update once the new pro version is release. But if you paid for subscription you’ll get update for future update including the new pro version. why can i just paid one time and get update forever? i’m planning to buy this but after looking at the paying system, i changed my mind. i’ll wait for infuse pro 6. and please include music player (mp3, flac, alac, and aac) and macOS app on the new pro version.

  • Good media manager app, Great ATV4k Player! Apr 5, 2019

    By Brad D.
    Here is the thing. Infuse is a good media manager app. It is nowhere near as good as Plex for media management, but its fine. It’s costs too much if you are using this simply to manage media or performing playback on an iPhone or iPad and the nature of the fact that is direct plays everything means its not really good outside of a WiFi connected device. What makes this app great is its playback capabilities, especially on an Apple TV 4K. For playing back video, particularly high resolution video with advanced audio codex, there is no equal. The quality of the video is superb. The quality of the audio is superb. The fact that it will down convert 4K to 1080p AND do HDR to SDR tone mapping is unique only to Infuse. (To my knowledge.) If you have a ATV4k and watch a lot of high quality content 4K HDR or otherwise and especially if you have a 4K TV, buy Infuse. Don’t bother with anything else. Just pay the money and be done with it.

    I will start by saying I wasn’t to thrilled about the subscription to enable certain features in the app. I like to pay once and be done, plus I have tons of other subscriptions and now I have another. However, I must admit once I really dove into this app and saw everything it can do I feeling like this app will be worth every cent every time I pay the renewal. The user interface is THE BEST I have ever seen. The metadata fetch is 97% spot on. Please ad a way to rename embedded metadata. The way it groups the tv show episodes under one cover and numbers each episode is simply amazing. I just wish the app had a built in web browser so I can access my sites to download files. I can’t get the TV app version to work with the iPad app. It would be nice to just quickly access my content through there instead of the iPad. Not sure what the issue is at this time.

    It’s absolutely hands down one of the best apps there is for displaying videos and almost all kinds. Moreover it’s completely easy to work with and you can adjust all features even the app appearance which is awesome. And to add to infuse’s perfectness, you can actually transfer files from your pc to your phone and vice versa. You can also open your downloaded videos in this app and save them there. Another amazing property would be the collection of all episodes of series and putting name and cover for them. This way you’d have an organized meticulous library which has divided your movies and series into different groups of watched/unwatched, Tv shows, movies, .... All in all I couldn’t imagine myself using another app for watching my movies and series on my phone.

    So this company breaks Infuse 4 in iOS 11 and/or on the iPhone X - I have to assume they broke it intentionally because my other media players still work fine - then withdraws it, and the update I was notified about, from the App Store, likely with the expectation that us lemmings will just pay up for pro features again in v5. Not only is that not happening, but I’m deleting Refuse... uh, Infuse 4 and 5 and never looking at Firecore apps again. Building goodwill... you’re doing it wrong! These developers that are now charging large fees in lieu of subscriptions think we don’t realize that the lifespan of these apps is only a few years, at most. So effectively we’re still paying subscriptions, assuming we keep buying the new versions. But with these slimy buggers I’m calling it one and done.

  • Rock solid video playback May 28, 2020

    By mediawolf
    I always loved their user interface but it was only recently that they added my must-have feature: playback speed control. I consume a lot of educational content and it’s to where I don’t even have the patience to listen at “normal” speed. It’s too slow. So I’ve been stuck using another app. Not anymore though. This immediately became my one and only video app. So many different options for how to get content into the app. Very well designed. And unlike a lot of apps that become buggy when you try to play back at higher speeds (looking at YOU VLC and every other app that uses the native iOS video engine for this, because that itself is buggy), the playback here is rock solid.

  • Works seamlessly with Apple TV, iPhone Jul 6, 2020

    By MRKP89
    I was using two apps: ExtremePlayer (another 5-star iOS app) and AirParrot (a Windows app). The former I used to stream movies from my laptop to my iPhone. The latter I used to mirror movies from my laptop to my Apple TV. I came across Infuse by accident and it streamlined those two apps for me while exceeding performance. ExtremePlayer was having a hard time streaming large mkv files (>10gb) to my phone while Infuse has no problem. Subtitles are displayed more clearly too. It’s the syndication with Apple TV that blows my mind. The app looks polish and delivers a user experience similar to watching Netflix or Prime or any other streaming apps. All while streaming my own media files. Adding a folder on my laptop was so easy it’s incredible. The app even has an option to pull in metadata automatically by file name or manually if the file name is funky. Now my movies are displayed with thumbnails, summary, and all other info like in a paid streaming app. Just incredible for 99c/month or less for annual or lifetime subscription. Must have if you download movies and are in the Apple ecosystem ie having Apple TV/iPhone etc

  • 4.75 Stars Jul 7, 2019

    By lhshepherd19
    There a few little tiny UI details I wish were part of Infuse. - When searching for metadata, there is no indication that a search is taking place until it shows the results. - The ability to change the “sort by” option on the fly versus having to go into the main menu settings would be nice. - On the iOS and iPadOS apps, the four soft buttons at the bottom aren’t very intuitive. Example: the magnifying glass makes me thing I’m searching my entire library, when in fact it’s the granular view of my library, with a search option. The file icon makes me think I’m going to my library, but I’m actually looking at the files I’ve pulled down locally on my device. - I wish the main library page (left-most icon) would show the “Collections” or “Genres”. Better yet, make the page customizable. All in all, I love this app. I love the seamlessness when airplaying. I love the Apple TV app. I love the performance. I love the price. I love the GUI. I love how much it is modeled after the native Apple apps, yet still it’s own thing. Half the price of Plex lifetime, and just as good!

  • Almost great Jun 18, 2019

    By Shagstah
    First the good - point it to your multimedia directory and let it do its thing. It will find most everything and get the Metadata automatically. Streams with ease, downloads with ease. The bad - the UI is terrible. Setting it up on your kids iPad you can only stop them from playing R rated movies, but you can’t stop them from seeing them. No easy way to mark a bunch of episodes as watched, no easy way to jump to a movie in the movies list. On and on the UI is irritating at best. If Infuse had the UI and UX of Plex, it would be the best. If Plex had the file management and streaming and downloading of Infuse, it would be the best. Unfortunately, they don’t so they are both half useful.

  • Best out there, but geared toward pirates Mar 4, 2018

    By consumerq
    Infuse is the best alternative to iTunes Home Sharing. I've had a USB drive full of media connected to an Airport Express Basestation since IFPro arrived for the aTV. Populating the thousand files can be a little pokey in the beginning, but it's better than keeping a computer running all day (for iTunes or Plex). Major downer for me is the limited metadata support. The app defaults to - in a strong armed manner - pulling metadata information from the web. I prefer to use my own meticulously cultivated embedded metadata. Unfortunately, Infuse only recognizes a limited amount of this embedded information. The app does a good job with fetching, but it a) isn't always the best information, b) doesn't work with home movies, c) slows things down, and d) will use up some precious aTV/iDevice hard drive space. I suspect the metadata fetching feature is really geared to people acquiring movies from less-than-legitimate sources. All in all, I've been happy with what the developer has been able to do with the app, but metadata handling is not quite there.

  • Love it but... Dec 5, 2019

    By trevorflynn
    I absolutely love this app! Using shared folder from external hard drive on my iMac. The app on Apple TV 4K gen4 running tvOS 13.2 works flawlessly. The app on my iPhone 10 XS Max running iOS 13.2.3, not so much. I was having to restart my phone every time I used the app just to get it to load a movie. Thought that maybe the latest iOS update broke it cause it was working fine till then. Saw that there was an update for infuse and thought it might address this. Updated and now when trying to watch anything on the iPhone app it starts to play for a few seconds and then gives a never ending spinner. I have tried restarting the iPhone and have deleted app and reinstalled to no avail. The latest update made the iPhone app completely useless. I would love to give this 5 stars but... Please fix this and I will change my rating.

  • Great app lousy purchasing system Oct 22, 2018

    By threeclaws
    I love the app and have it on my atv, it works well and 8s relatively trouble free. Every few weeks the app tells me I have upgrade to pro and locks me out, which would be fine if it weren’t for the fact that I already purchased the yearly service. The issue is my wife bought it on her account and the atv is connected to my account. So every few weeks I have to log into my wife’s account on the atv, open infuse, go back and log out of the wife’s account and then log back into mine. This is a hassle and it’s an unnecessary one. What I don’t get is why don’t you link the authentication to trakt? Then it wouldn’t matter what account the device was logged into since I would be logged in through trakt. Or figure something else out.
